states and the european union are not trying to take ukraine into its orbit at the expense of russia. we want to see ukraine that's independent, which it is, but peaceful and hopefully one day prosperous because right now it's an economic basket case. and so we need to see russia cooperate with the eu and the united states to see if we can't stabilize the economic situation because basically that's really at the core of the country's problems right now. >> it absolutely is. and i wonder what other end game there possibly could be here other than somebody, whether it's the u.s., a combination of international bodies, extending billions of dollars of aid to ukraine or if there's some other outcome that we're not thinking about at the moment. >> well, the united states, the imf, eu are all interested in providing economic assistance, but it has to be tied to economic reforms, and this has been the challenge in the past. russia has moved in with its $15 billion aid proposal without any conditions. they just simply want to make sure that they continue to be a dominant force in the region and

listen to a discussion about ukraine and the united states, it's all about this is the eu or russia, a forced choice, some kind of big monumental decision for ukraine. do you see it so divided, choosing between eu and russia? >> ukrainians would not want to make it look like this. it wants help from all of its neighbors including russia and on the other side, but the majority of the population definitely supports european standards of business, democracy, free market economy. >> reporter: thanks so much for joining us, mr. fiala. we really appreciate it. tomas fiala, ceo of dragon capital. back to you. >> thank you very much. again, michelle caruso-cabrera. we have been talking around the table about the minimum wage. we've been talking about it since you first joined us, kevin. we've been talking about it off camera a little bit since then. >> no death threats? >> i simply asked a question. does increasing the minimum wage actually help someone get a job in america? and the answer is no. >> the answer is no. the question is, it's the quality of life. do we believe in the minimum wa
your military. you certainly have controls over the economy of ukraine, gas, loans, credits. so you can flex muscle but do it in a way that tries to hold the country together. i think that's the message the united states and the e.u. has to send. let's say let's work with russia to provide a solution and not simply use a hammer to try and hammer the ukranian people into submission. >> it's no secret to diplomats and analysts putin has wanted to create an eastern alliance for countries if you will some parts of the old soviet union. part of his focus now seems to be -- correct me if i'm wrong -- with krimea that would give him access, another warm water port. it's important to him. if you see moves in that area i'm sure we'd see that as a sign >> it is important to russia. and we should be sensitive to russia's interests in the region as well. it's not as if that this is going to be a move toward the united states and western democracy overnight. i think what our position is and has to be that we want to see ukraine which is an independent country have the ukranian people decide for them
